About the Black Zonker Trout Fly
The Black Zonker is a successful stillwater Attractor Pattern and a great baitfish imitator.
Very attractive to large, predatory Trout; works well in both rivers and lakes.
The special tying generates excitement from the additional eye tinsel body to the tantalizing way the rabbit fur moves.
Dan Byford invented the Zonker as a "swimming action" bait fish fly.
His fly was an instant success and has become a 'must have' for still water fishers where ever there are Trout; accounting for many species of fresh water game fish.
Creator of this trout fly:
Country of origin for this trout fly: America
This trout fly is designed to be fished on Dams & Reservoirs, Rivers & Streams, Still Water fish
Comments from other fly fishermen
I have fished Zonker's for years in the western USA with great success. The body of this fly and it's head is tied incorrectly. I suppose that this pattern will catch fish, but my trust goes with Dan Byford's original dressing which can be found from Umpqua Feather Merchants. - 3 out of 5 Stars by Scott W. on 03/08/2011
